1) RI income tax was withheld,
2) amount paid to RI recipient derived from income attributable to obligations of other states,
3) payments to non-residents of RI for services in RI,
4) qualified depository accepting deposits as family education accounts...
No, Rhode Island does not. The best way to file is directly with the state.
